Manchester City have already received several big-money offers this summer for versatile youngster Oleksandr Zinchenko, according to Sam Lee of Goal.
The 21-year-old was one of the surprise packages last season when Pep Guardiola played him as left-back following the injuries to Benjamin Mendy and Fabian Delph, with the Ukraine international doing a commendable job in the role.
With Mendy back and Delph, himself a converted left-back, impressing Guardiola, chances may be few and far between for Zinchenko – who made 14 appearances in all competitions in the double-winning campaign and could see even less game time next season if he sticks around.
City are open to selling Zinchenko in this transfer window and Sam Lee reports that they have already received offers worth between £10million and £20million for the player.
The identity of the teams is not revealed and a sale is not thought to be close to completion, but Zinchenko, after almost joining Napoli a year ago, may be on his way out of the Etihad Stadium.
